“Dr. DeLuca just told me the facts and his opinion and that was it, no pressure.”
I met with Dr. DeLuca and I had a list of questions about my procedure, but he had answered all of them before I even had to ask. Dr. DeLuca just told me the facts and his opinion and that was it, there was no pressure or feeling like I was not being taken serious. Everyone in the office was always very kind and helpful! Dr. DeLuca did an amazing job, he truly understands and makes your vision come true I love my results and would highly recommend him to family, friends, and even strangers!!! Thank you Dr. DeLuca!

“When I came in to see Dr. DeLuca, my whole outlook changed. I was unhappy and self-conscious
for so long and you helped me gain not only my confidence back, but my life.”
As you know, I came in with a serious case of scoliosis which contorted and twisted my entire rib cage. Because of this I was very unhappy with the way my torso looked, especially the asymmetry of my breast. I was beginning to become somewhat depressed with my situation, however, when I came in to see you my whole outlook changed. I know my case was a challenge and I can truly say I am extremely happy with the results and feel absolutely amazing. You do amazing work and I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I was unhappy and self-conscious for so long and you helped me gain not only my confidence back, but my life.

“Taking me through each step, clearly and so that I could become assured,
calm and confident in my decision.”
As someone who may be younger than some of Dr. DeLuca’s patients, (26) I was a little intimidated and nervous about the process. My double chin had always been an issue for myself. Even when I was in high school, playing sports year round and weighing like a feather, I had a double chin. It was very much out of place on me. And while, I am older and weigh a little more than a feather now – it still is out of place. In reality it was due to my round face and small chin, and anything I did would not take it away. I was determined to do something about then. After much discussion with my mother I decided on visiting Dr. DeLuca. Dr. DeLuca and wonderful staff (especially Gloria!) made not only myself, but my mother feel that we had made the right choice.
Dr. DeLuca was thorough in explaining what could, and then would be done. Taking me through each step, clearly and so that I could become assured, calm and confident in my decision. The weeks leading up the surgery, Dr. DeLuca, Gloria and the staff were on top of every process. Even the wonderful ladies at the surgery center made me feel at ease, not rushed, so that I wasn’t just “another” surgery on their schedule.
The day of the surgery went by fast and without a hitch. The pain was minimal and the recovery time, was just like Dr. DeLuca predicted under a week! I almost didn’t want to believe him, but within a week I was back at work, and loving my new chin/neck.
The work Dr. DeLuca preformed may have been a small surgery but the confidence it gave me, to project about myself into the world is something I wouldn’t trade away. I feel and see that in the way that I carry myself now, at work and in my personal life and how I (finally!) pose for pictures! Dr. DeLuca may be a wonderful surgeon but the way that not only himself, but his staff put you at ease, and make you feel at home with them, may be only one reason, but a big one,of the reasons why I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!
A big thanks again to Dr. DeLuca and his staff for what you have done.

“Not just a plastic surgeon restoring physical attributes, but one’s inner confidence”
Dear Dr. DeLuca,
I just wanted to take a minute to express my deepest gratitude for the work you do. I know I can speak for all of your patients when I tell you that you are not just a plastic surgeon restoring physical attributes, but a surgeon restoring one’s inner confidence which allows them to emerge into the world without fear and humility. You are restoring a vital piece of your patients’ lives every single day, their soul. We must love who we are to be what we want to be. Your professionalism and character allow those with any hesitation to feel comfortable and safe. You are the catalyst to many people’s transformations physically, psychologically, and emotionally.
Not everyone wants to be someone else. Many of us love who we are and loved who we were. I thought you should know that you touch the lives of your patients not just once, but forever. That is quite impressive.
Thank you for the spectacular work you do.

“Dr. DeLuca is impeccable in his care & concern for his patients. He is meticulous & gifted in his skills as a surgeon and was easily my choice when I (a surgical scrub nurse), had plastic surgery.”
As a surgical scrub, I have had the privilege of working side by side with Dr. DeLuca for the past nine years and have seen first hand the kind of Doctor and person that he is. Simply put, Dr. DeLuca, defines the word “gentleman”. As a physician, he is impeccable in his care and concern for his patients. He is meticulous and gifted in his skills as a surgeon and was easily my choice when I myself, had plastic surgery.
His professionalism, attention to detail and exceptional skills in the operating room surpasses all others. As a patient and professional co-worker I would (and do) recommend all of my family and friends to him.

“My #1 choice of plastic surgeons in Albany NY.”
I have had the pleasure of working closely in the operating room as nurse technician with Dr. DeLuca for 13 years. I feel honored to be a part of his excellent outcomes on every procedure Dr. DeLuca performs. After working so closely with Dr. DeLuca I felt very comfortable myself choosing him as my plastic surgeon. I’ll never forget my first post-op visit… when he took my dressings off I actually had tears in my eyes. He helped me to feel the best I’ve ever felt about myself. Dr. DeLuca was by far my #1 choice of plastic surgeons in Albany N.Y.

“Dr. DeLuca strives to ensure your satisfaction and performs superior work
that looks natural and healthy – not fake and plasterized.”
I want to express how much I appreciate the wonderful work of Dr. DeLuca. He is professional and has improved my self confidence and has taken such good care of me, over and beyond the call of duty. Dr. DeLuca strives to ensure your satisfaction and performs superior work that looks natural and healthy – not fake and plasterized. Over the years, he has taken great care to detail as well. All should know about Dr. DeLuca as he is the plastic surgeon to go to for not only medical procedures pertaining to medically necessary plastic surgeries but also plastic surgery of a cosmetic nature if someone wants to look and feel better about themselves.

I have been a patient of Dr. DeLuca’s for over ten years. Not only have I received excellent results from any surgery I have had, but I feel confident that I am having a competent surgeon with many years experience perform such surgery. He has always conducted himself in a professional, competent manner. I highly recommend him and have only to find the patient always satisfied!

“Progressive, not aggressive; an artful eye for creating the appearance of natural beauty.”
Historically, when someone finds an amazing Plastic Surgeon they tend to keep him/her to themselves. That is not the case with me. I searched for a very long time, both in and out of the Capital District to find a physician who was compassionate, honest, progressive, not aggressive and someone who had amazing surgical techniques and an artful eye for creating the appearance of natural beauty.
I have been a patient of Dr. DeLuca’s for many years and I have continued to be pleased with everything he has helped me with. Over the years I have made many referrals to Dr. DeLuca. Each and everyone one of those referrals felt that Dr. DeLuca far exceeded their expectations. I don’t think it gets much better than that!!

“There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not completely thrilled with the outcome
and I could not imagine trusting another cosmetic surgeon in Albany.”
I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Dr. DeLuca and staff on his new private practice.
I speak for myself, my daughter and several friends in saying without a doubt will continue seeking Dr. DeLuca’s expertise in the world of plastic surgery.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not completely thrilled with the outcome of the surgery performed by Dr. DeLuca. He is truly a master of his craft. I couldn’t imagine trusting another surgeon should I ever require (or desire) any future surgery.
I would also like to thank Dr. DeLuca and his staff for always conducting themselves in a professional caring manner. Regardless of the nature of the procedure, anxiety is always a factor. I was always reassured and tended to meet and console my comfort level.

“Dr. DeLuca has always had complete integrity as a doctor
and I have always completed trusted him.”
For the past 15 years, I have been a patient of Dr. William DeLuca. Over the years, Dr. DeLuca has personally performed cosmetic work on me, including both major and minor out patient procedures and maintenance Botox injections.
I have always found Dr. DeLuca to be very professional, honest and caring. I feel he has always been upfront about everything with me as a patient, particularly if I inquired about a certain procedure where he would tell me “you do not need it (yet)”.
Not only have I been Dr. DeLuca’s patient, but my mother and my 21 year old son have had surgery performed by him as well. He has also performed out-patient procedures on my 18 year old son too.
I feel Dr. DeLuca has always had complete integrity as a doctor and I have always completed trusted him, literally with my life. Not only have I trusted him with my life, but my mother’s and most of all my son’s lives as well.

“It’s been 6 months already and I’ve never felt more confident or received
more compliments. I enjoy seeing photos of myself for the 1st time in a decade!”
This is a long over-due “Thank you” letter! I had tortured myself for years with the idea of exploring plastic surgery to correct a physical characteristic that bothered me on a daily basis. I was so self conscious that I didn’t even want to admit I was self conscious! All it took was one call to your office and speaking with Gloria, who is AMAZING, and I stopped by for a free consultation. Not only did I feel comfortable speaking with you, I felt completely confident in your abilities to help me. You showed me a whole book of before-and-after photos and you also made me feel like there were no wrong questions to ask. You were straight forward and honest about your expectations for my surgery, and I have to say it has been 6 months already and I have never felt more confident or received more compliments. I enjoy seeing photos of myself for the first time in a decade, and only wish I had gotten your help years ago!
The entire process was smooth and simple from start to finish. Everything was made so simple, even the surgery center staff was amazing and sweet. I healed and recovered faster than I ever imagined and now recommend you to any and everyone. Thank you for what you do, I am certain your new private practice will soar!

“With Dr. DeLuca its all about the best end results. He gave me my life back
and now I am more confident than I have ever been.”
Dr. DeLuca gave me my life back and now I am more confident than I have ever been.
I had my first consultation in 2006 but instead of jumping for the money he told me to come back when I was done having a family because with him its all about the best end results – which is why mine were the best they were for me and better than I had ever envisioned. On my last consultation he gave me a packet on what to expect and do before and after surgery after explaining in detail what he was going to do explained all the different types of implants and what would suit my body better and that I should call if I thought of anything else and call I did, especially after surgery. It did not matter what time or that it was a weekend – he was there to answer my questions, reassure me and talk me through the tough times with no trace of impatience. Just knowing he was a telephone call away put me at ease and the recovery that much easier. Now I look in the mirror every morning and go wow! That’s me! I went from a size 10 to a size 6 and that Little red dress I loved so much and have saved for so long looks even better on me now that i have fabulous cleavage to go with it. And this is all thanks to Dr D. You gave me my confidence back. Thank you and I love you!

“Today, I feel more confident in the clothes I wear. I receive compliments on my
new slim figure, and shopping for new clothes isn’t dreadful anymore.”
A big thank you to Dr. DeLuca for changing the way I look and feel! My weight has been steady for many years, and I had a few troubled spots that I worked very hard to get rid of. I’ve always followed a healthy diet and exercise regularly but after realizing that I needed help with removing the fat deposits that bothered me for so long, I turned to having surgery.
When I had my consultation with Dr. DeLuca, I was very comfortable from the minute I sat down with him. Prior to my consultation, I did a lot of research on the procedure I wanted. I asked him several questions and he explained what the surgery entailed, from beginning to end. After spending about an hour at my consultation, I did not feel pressured by him to have the surgery – which I respected very much. He simply stated the facts and was confident he could do what I wanted.
I also did research on several surgeons in the Albany area, and learned that he is a very well-respected surgeon with many years of experience. The testimonials, recommendations, and photos prove that so it brought me at ease knowing that I was in good hands with him. I believe he is an excellent surgeon that is very professional, caring, and honest. In addition, he and his staff were always very quick to answer any questions I had before and after my surgery.
Today, I feel more confident in the clothes I wear. I receive compliments on my new slim figure, and shopping for new clothes isn’t dreadful anymore. I follow a healthy diet and exercise to maintain my results. Thank you for helping me achieve my goals, Dr. DeLuca!
I am a very happy patient and would definitely recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery.

“Dr. Delucas demeanor and disposition is so down to earth and he makes you feel so comfortable. Don’t think twice if you are seeking a provider. I am in the medical field and I am telling you this physician is the top of the line.”
I was recommended by a friend to Dr. Deluca. She was extremely pleased with him as a physician. Based on her opinion, I too chose him as my provider and will recommend him to all of my fellow coworkers after experiencing his surgical artwork.
I underwent upper eyelid surgery, breast augmentation and rhinoplasty and honestly it was the best decision of my life. I couldn’t be happier and more pleased with how everything turned out. It looks natural but more refined and my confidence is so much greater. I have many children and this is the first thing that I have done for myself in a long time. The pain HONESTLY was minimal. The recovery a peice of cake and the result phenomenal. He will give you his honest opinion in regards to the procedure that you are requesting. No mixing words. He is honest and upfront. His goal is to ENHANCE your outer beauty not to drastically change it. It is so suttle but makes such a huge difference in your appearance and your opinion of yourself that only you will know why you look and feel so good.
Dr. Delucas demeanor and disposition is so down to earth and he makes you feel so comfortable. Don’t think twice if you are seeking a provider. I am in the medical field and I am telling you this physician is the top of the line. Not only does he back his years of experience behind him but also all the initials that go with it. Up to date on all the current surgical techniques and constantly wanting to better his approach and advance his already percision skilled ways.
Love this man for making me love myself even more now!

“I had worked hard to get myself back to the shape I once was prior to giving birth to my two boys but to no avail. I finally decided to have a Mommy Makeover but still was extremely nervous.”
I had worked hard to get myself back to the shape I once was prior to giving birth to my two boys but to no avail. I finally decided to have a Mommy Makeover but still was was extremely nervous. Although I had heard of good outcomes, I had heard just as many bad.
I am extremely lucky to have found Dr. DeLuca in Latham, NY. He is hands down the most down to earth doctor I have ever encountered and his work on me was simply phenomenal. He first took his time to explain (in full detail) what he would do in terms that I could understand and not the standard cold latin medical lingo. After surgery, he again took his time to explain what to expect and made it clear that he is available if I had any concerns during my recovery period.
In short, I am extremely happy with the masterful work of Dr. DeLuca; I would recommend him without any hesitation.

“I don’t only look sexy. I FEEL SEXY! And I will never get tired of hearing how great I look. The hardest thing was making the phone call, after that I wondered why I hadn’t done it sooner.”
I couldn’t have asked for any better experience with a plastic surgeon then the one I had. Dr DeLuca and everyone that works with him from the office to the surgery nurses are so nice and very professional.
I have to drive 4 hours one way to see him and I am telling you that I would gladly drive double that… heck, triple that after seeing my results. He exceeded my expectations on what I thought could be done to my body. I don’t only look sexy. I FEEL SEXY! And I will never get tired of hearing how great I look.
I highly recommend Dr. DeLuca if at all possible for you plastic surgery needs. He really has an eye for detail and WOW! he knows his stuff. And I don’t really feel like the distance is much of and issue. Any time I have had a question he or his office has been a phone call away and always gotten back to me within minutes and my concerns were addressed promptly.
I thought about a mommy makeover for years and never thought it would be possible for me and actually I was scared of just doing it. The hardest part was probably making the phone call, after that I wondered why I hadn’t done it sooner.
I would do it over again without a second thought. Mommies… do it for yourselves, you deserve it!!

I did my research. I searched and searched for months for the right person to take care of my “issues”. I went to 2 other consultations and wasn’t impressed at all. From my initial phone call to my first visit to Dr. Deluca’s office, to now 4 months post-op (mommy makeover), I couldn’t be happier. Dr. DeLuca has the credentials, experience, and results I was looking for. He listened to what I wanted, and was able to work with all of that, and reassure me that I would get the results I was looking for. I am so happy to have chosen him, and plan on returning in the future :] Thank you so much Dr. DeLuca!

“My results more than justify his reputation for being the #1 plastic surgeon in Albany, NY.”
During my first time meeting with Dr. DeLuca I had so many questions to ask. He was upfront, forward and took his time explaining everything in full detail. After that very first consultation, I knew I no longer needed to keep looking for another plastic surgeon. I was so excited that I scheduled my procedure right away. His staff is great and was always there for me when I had questions. In fact, just as I walked in the door from my surgery, my phone began ringing and it was them checking in to see how I was doing!
At 22 years old and after having 2 babies, Dr. DeLuca gave me my flat belly back and the breasts I’ve always wanted! It’s been 3 months now since my “mommy makeover” and the results are not only amazing but most of all, look natural. He is such a gifted surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to family, friends and even strangers. My results more than justify his reputation for being the #1 plastic surgeon in Albany, NY.

When I first thought of having elective plastic surgery, I asked around and one surgeon’s name was prominent – Dr. DeLuca’s. So, despite the fact that I was extremely nervous, I made my consultation appointment with Dr. DeLuca. Dr. DeLuca made me very comfortable, eased my nerves, and assured me that everything would go smoothly. And my surgery and recovery did. Dr. DeLuca is a top notch surgeon. I could not be happier with the outcome. I look at myself now and have so much more confidence. Thank you Dr. DeLuca, I feel and look terrific! I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to everyone I know.
P.S. I also want to say that his office staff is extremely courteous, competent and terrific as well. I had a minor billing issue and his staff took care if it right away.

“Dr. DeLuca was with me every step of the way through my recovery process. He has given me back a self-confidence in my appearance that I never thought that I would feel again.”
I have 3 children, one of which was a c-section. I have been working out for the last 3 years. Although I was happy with some of my results, it became very clear that all of the extra skin around my lower abdomen and my droopy breasts were not going to improve. I was always embarrassed at how I looked in a bathing suit or in front of my partner.
After searching online and going to see another plastic surgeon, I finally found Dr. DeLuca. I went for a consultation, really not knowing if I would really have any procedure done. Dr. DeLuca made me very comfortable with my feelings. He showed me before and after pictures of women that had very similar bodies/situations to my own. I was not satisfied with the work of the other plastic surgeons that I had met with, but very satisfied with Dr. DeLuca, because he truly has an eye to give a very natural look.
Not only was I thrilled with the results of my surgery with Dr. DeLuca, he was with me every step of the way through my entire recovery process.
Dr. DeLuca has given me back a self-confidence in my appearance that I never thought that I would feel again.

“Dr. DeLuca has incredible talent and he really puts you at ease with explaining the entire
process. Words cannot express how much he changed my life and my self-esteem.”
Dr. DeLuca has positively changed my life forever!
I was educated and mentally ready for my challenge to have weight loss surgery, but I was not prepared for what it did to my body and my self-esteem once I got to my goal weight.
From the very first time meeting with Dr. DeLuca I was completely at ease with him. I loved his demeanor, professionalism and complete dedication to his work. I might add a perfectionist… which I admire! My first surgery with him was a breast correction with implants and a full tummy tuck at the same time. The results were beyond my expectation. My breasts are now the same size prior to surgery but they are fuller, lifted and positioned perfectly. They do not look “fake” and they look so natural as if they were like this my whole life. My full tummy tuck which is absolutely amazing… allows me to now buy the right size clothes. My second surgery was liposuction, which reshaped my lower back and upper buttocks area. I had fat deposits that I could not get rid of by diet and exercise. The bruising was a bit scary but it all went away very quickly.
Dr. DeLuca has incredible talent and he really puts you at ease with explaining the entire process. His staff is very caring and professional. Words cannot express how much he changed my life and my self-esteem. I would certainly do this all over again with Dr. DeLuca without any hesitation.

“I had consultations all over the world with 10-12 different plastic surgeons. I felt Dr. DeLuca
knew exactly how to solve “my breast issues”. Right away, I knew I had found ‘The One’.”
I am 28 years old and for about 10 years I have wanted to correct my tuberous breast condition, which I no longer have thanks to Dr. DeLuca! I had consultations all over the world, with about 10-12 different plastic surgeons. It was only when I posted my photos and question on RealSelf.com that I came across Dr. DeLuca. He was one of many surgeons who replied to my question, yet instantly, I felt he knew exactly what he was talking about and how to solve what I called “my breast issues”. Right away, I knew I had found “The One” – in the surgeon form that is.
While many plastic surgeons told me that my breasts would never be “perfect” and that I may require numerous surgeries to correct them, Dr. DeLuca’s straight forward and confident response led me to his website, where I found several before and after photos of woman with similar breasts to mine. This blew me away. Seeing Dr. DeLuca’s results in photos gave me great confidence that I had finally found a surgeon who knew how exactly to deal with a case like mine!
So in August of this year, I booked my ticket and hotel accommodations and flew all the way to Albany, New York for my surgery (I’m from Australia). Many people told me it was quite a long distance to fly but I knew it was worth the distance for I had finally found a surgeon who I could trust and had complete confidence in.
I am two weeks post op and I can say that I now have what I consider “perfect” breasts. Prior to my surgery, I wasn’t even aiming for perfection, I just wanted to look and feel normal. I just wanted my condition to be fixed. However, Dr. DeLuca exceeded my expectations by far. I went shopping yesterday at Victoria Secret and what a pleasure it was to be told by the shop assistance what lovely breasts I have. What a pleasure it was to fit properly into a bra.
I wish I could say that cosmetic surgery hasn’t changed my life, but I guess in many ways it has. I felt my condition held me back in so many ways before the correction. Be it in intimate relationships, in how I dressed or how I saw myself, inside I was confident, I just felt my body (breasts) didn’t reflect it. Now I have nothing to hold me back!
I want to give my sincere thanks and gratitude to Dr. DeLuca, his staff in the office and his nursing staff (who were even so sweet to ask me out for Dinner as they knew I was here alone). Thank you for allowing me to trust in you and for your superior work in correcting my tuberous breast condition.
I hope you show my before and after photos because only when people see it, will they truly believe how amazing my result is.

Asymmetric Breast Correction
“I can’t even describe the relief I feel, now that I no longer have to try and conceal my breasts
– the end result was better than I ever imagined.”
I am so pleased that I chose Dr. DeLuca as my plastic surgeon. For as long as I can remember I have had asymmetric breasts (which has made it difficult to find bras, swimsuits and clothes that properly fit). I came to Dr. DeLuca wanting more symmetrical breasts that would be appropriate for my body frame and I left feeling like a new person!
Dr. DeLuca performed a breast reduction on my larger breast, as well as a breast lift and augmentation on both breasts. Prior to surgery I was very nervous when picking a size for my breasts because I did not want the end result to be too large or noticeable. Dr. DeLuca put me at ease and decided on a size which complements my body type perfectly. I can’t even describe the relief I feel, now that I no longer have to try and conceal my breasts – the end result was better than I ever imagined.
Dr. DeLuca did an amazing job with my procedure; he was caring and compassionate throughout the entire process. He answered every question I had and made this life changing experience an easy one. I am so grateful that I finally chose to have this corrected and that I selected such a competent and talented plastic surgeon.

Breast Implant Revision
“I was pleased at Dr. DeLuca’s listening skills, honesty and patience”
I originally went to Dr. William DeLuca at a referral from a girlfriend after another Albany plastic surgeon did an unsatisfactory job of altering my breasts (too large and uneven). I was so pleased with Dr. DeLuca’s listening skills, honesty and patience with me that I chose to have the surgery again. This was almost seven years ago and the results were excellent. Since then I have returned to Dr. DeLuca for a couple of other “non-breast” procedures with incredible results. I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to other friends (which I have) without hesitation.

“Dr. DeLuca took the time to make sure my surgery was a success. Besides looking beautiful,
they are comfortable, especially compared to my other implants.”
I was in search of a plastic surgeon to perform a replacement of my breast implants which had become severely contorted due to capsular contracture. My surgery ended up more complicated than expected, however you would never know, because my breasts look beautiful!
Dr. DeLuca took the time to make sure my surgery was a success. I am a petite woman, and wanted to look natural. Dr. DeLuca LISTENED to my request and replaced my 300cc saline, over the muscle implants with the same size MemoryGel silicone implants, submuscular. Besides looking beautiful, they are comfortable, especially compared to my other implants, which was another important factor for me.
Thank you Dr. DeLuca, my breasts look and feel wonderful now.

Thank you Dr. DeLuca!!!
Dr. DeLuca accomplished in 2 hours what should have been done 4 years ago after a mastectomy. Over 6 surgeries with horrific outcomes, I finally went to Dr. DeLuca when several friends told me what a wonderful surgeon he was. He rebuilt my breast to look like my other breast. No more pain. No more hiding in large clothes. It looks beautiful. I feel like a new woman!! Great job Dr. DeLuca

“Dr. DeLuca slept at his office that night so that he would be able to see his patient appointments
the following day. That was the moment I knew he was a caring and diligent surgeon.”
I would like to this opportunity to say Thank you to Dr. DeLuca. As with all of his patients, my special situation/circumstances have led me to this incredibly caring and talented surgeon.
First a bit of history:
In July of 2009, I woke up one morning and decided that at 5’0 168 lbs. was not acceptable. I disliked what I had become, how I looked and how I put myself last on the “take care” list. I was married, had two children, and worked full-time. So with that said, I realized what I needed to do, be more active again and start eating healthier: basically making better life choices for myself. I needed to start giving myself the same quality care as I did for my family. Within weeks, I started seeing a difference. Within months I shed 50 lbs, the right way: by making healthy choices. I reevaluated my diet, ran daily, went to the gym and trained with kettlebells and free weights. I was feeling wonderful!
Approximately a year later, July of 2010, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. Again, I did what I had to do, went in for surgery, had a lumpectomy and an axillary node dissection. In September of 2010, I started 6 weeks of radiation. Concluding in October, I was on the road to recovery. In January, 2011 I met with by breast surgeon and we talked about reconstructive surgery. Since I did not have a mastectomy, it wasn’t required, however I had the option of having it done. After much thought about my personal being, how hard I worked to get my body back into shape and dealing with breast cancer, I had decided to take the plunge. As I was researching various techniques and implants I stumbled upon Dr. DeLuca. I looked at the “before and after” pictures. I read various bio’s and felt he was the right match for me.
I emailed Dr. DeLuca on the weekend explaining my situation realizing that not all plastic surgeons would pick up cancer recovering patients. Much to my surprise, Dr. DeLuca emailed be back within 24 hours stating that his office would call me on Monday to set up an appointment. He was definitely interested in meeting me and taking on my case. I was scheduled to meet Dr. DeLuca in early September. I was extremely excited and anxious to meet Dr. DeLuca. The weekend before my appointment we were hit by the tropical storm, IRENE. Our house was hit hard and we had to evacuate. Water was coming into the house on the bottom floor. The next morning was my appointment. Considering that I live 45 minutes south of Dr. DeLuca, I called up Dr. DeLuca’s office to ensure he was still seeing patients that day. The surgical secretary stated that Dr. DeLuca himself was asked to evacuate his street the night before. Dr. DeLuca slept at his office that night so that he would be able to see his patient appointments the following day. That was the moment that I knew he was a caring and diligent surgeon.
As my house was recovering I drove up and met Dr. DeLuca. It was obvious he had read my profile and knew all the pertinent details of my cancer and surgery. I was duly impressed. Dr. DeLuca explained exactly what he could do, and the rationale behind it. He knew that fitness and the continuation of my training program was important to my new lifestyle. With that, Dr. DeLuca was able to create symmetry and insert implants just enough so that I was proportionate without impacting my fitness routine. Each follow-up visit and consultation was professional, and thorough. I remember prior to surgery feeling confident, well informed, and knowing that I had truly found the perfect surgeon for me.
Dr. DeLuca’s office staff is incredible. He is surrounded by a caring, supportive and professional team.
I have experienced many changes the past couple of years. Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for Dr. DeLuca. I am extremely thrilled with the results. I feel better now at 47 then I did in my 20’s and 30’s. I continue my life of health and fitness, with the confidence and body I have always wanted, even with the obstacles along the way. I wholeheartedly Thank You, Dr. DeLuca!

“I could not have asked for a better outcome than from Dr. DeLuca.
Finally, those dreadful days of bathing suit shopping are over.”
I just wanted to thank you for truly changing my life and making me feel more like a woman. This experience has been life changing in so many positive ways. After nursing my second child I was left with minimal breast tissue. This made me feel embarrassed, unattractive and not very womanly. The first time I called your office Gloria was extremely helpful in answering my questions. She promptly called me back to schedule my first initial appointment. After meeting with you, your experience and confidence in meeting my expectations was my deciding factor in scheduling the procedure with you. Within 2 weeks your staff was able to schedule me for the procedure. Now, 2 months later, I have resumed all normal activities just as you said I would. My incision scar is unbelievable, it’s barely noticeable! I could not have asked for a better outcome. Your advice and guidance truly helped meet my goals of looking proportioned to my body shape and not overdone. This procedure has boosted my self esteem and confidence. Finally, those dreadful days of bathing suit shopping are over. For the first time I look and feel absolutely amazing.

“I made two excellent decisions this year: having breast augmentation surgery
and selecting Dr. DeLuca – the best plastic surgeon – to perform it.”
I lost two cup sizes after losing the weight from my pregnancies. I felt great being thinner but was unsatisfied with my flatter chest. I thought a boost in my breasts would help regain the femininity I felt I was lacking.
I was absolutely positive in my decision to have breast augmentation surgery but thought choosing a doctor would be the difficult part. I needed someone highly experienced with a track record of great successes to put any worries I had to rest. Dr. DeLuca was strongly recommended stating that he did truly beautiful work. Exactly what I was looking for!
Only a few short months later and I can now personally attest to not only the beauty of his work (I am so very happy with the results), but also to Dr. DeLuca’s professional conduct, non-judgmental demeanor and dedication to his client’s satisfaction. His pride was best demonstrated in his reaction to his work at my post-surgical appointment.
I made two excellent decisions this year: having the surgery and selecting the best plastic surgeon to perform it. I would proudly recommend Dr. DeLuca to family and friends.

“When I met Dr. DeLuca all of my fears about the surgery disappeared… It was honestly one
of the best experiences I’ve been through and wouldn’t change it for the world.”
I had my breast augmentation surgery in February 2012. I have struggled for years over my breast size and knew that someday I would go through with the surgery.
When I met Dr. DeLuca all of my fears about the surgery disappeared and all my questions were answered. It was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve been through and wouldn’t change it for the world.
Dr. DeLuca was so helpful with helping me pick out what size would be best for me and my body. Together we found what would look best and three months later I am still extremely happy with how everything turned out.
Dr. DeLuca and his staff were so personable and helped me through everything and even when I felt annoying with all my questions they listened and were just amazing.
When I had my surgery I was a little nervous going into it but he was right there and really took care of me and I couldn’t imagine it going any other way. I know that he was the best surgeon for me and I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else.
Even months later, I still go to my check ups and every time I see him he still makes sure I’m still happy with my choice and of course I am!

“I am so happy with the results and would recommend Dr. DeLuca in a heart beat.”
It has been 6 months since my breast augmentation and I am still on cloud nine. From my initial visit with Dr. DeLuca 2 years ago to my last most recent visit, my experience has been nothing short of amazing. The staff makes you feel comfortable and at ease right away and Dr. DeLuca will take the time to listen to your concerns and offer wonderful, spot on advice. Having a breast augmentation was a big decision for me. I had breast fed both of my children and had lost most of the breast tissue and I was barely an A cup. One of my biggest fears was going too big and Dr. DeLuca and I had many conversations about what size I should be. I finally gave him the trust he deserved and went with what he said, a small C. He was right in every way! I am so happy with the results and would recommend Dr. DeLuca in a heart beat.

“Dr. DeLuca is an amazing surgeon. Not only is he a plastic surgeon, he is an artist. The work
I’ve seen by him, not only on myself, but on other people as well is truly a work of art.”
Dr. DeLuca is an amazing surgeon. Not only is he a plastic surgeon, he is an artist. The work I’ve seen by him, not only on myself, but on other people as well is truly a work of art. He has an eye for beauty and knows how to tastefully make changes that look incredible, yet still keeps you looking like yourself, not completely fake and unrecognizable.
I had my breast augmentation in March of 2011 and already look and feel amazing. He made this experience for me an absolute breeze. I had little to no anxiety about the procedure due to his care, knowledge and compassion. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else in the area. He is simply THE BEST!
Thank you for everything Dr.D! You made the breasts I had better and my confidence is through the roof! Your work does just as much good on the inside as it does on the outside!

“The result: I actually feel like a woman now. I feel sexy and I enjoy clothing so much more.”
I met Dr. DeLuca in 2004. I had been contemplating breast augmentation for years and just kept talking myself out of it. A friend of mine told me that her sister had been to see Dr DeLuca and had an augmentation. She went on and on about how real they look & how they fit her perfectly. I had some money put away and decided to, at the very least, check the logistics of it out. I had a consultation along with my friend and we both decided to go for it. Everything about him sets you at ease. Nothing feels strange about the consultation. It’s very clinical and very informative. I let him decide where I should be with regard to breast size, he IS the expert. The surgery was a breeze and everyone who works with him is just amazing. The result: I actually feel like a woman now. I feel sexy and I enjoy clothing so much more. I honestly thought that I looks so boyish before. Dr DeLuca fixed that and I can never express how grateful I am. My confidence and self body image is so improved. A went from an A-small B to a D immediately. It was amazing. Now I’ve put a little weight on, more to grow into my beautiful breasts than for any other reason. Now I have curves and am a perfect DD. I went to a little lingerie shop this summer to be properly fitted & buy some sexy bras. The women in the shop kept going on and on about what beautiful breasts I have. Thank you so much Dr. DeLuca. I’m sure I’ll be seeing you again when the fear of getting older hits me.

“After meeting Dr. DeLuca, I did not need to go to any more consultations.
Dr. DeLuca was informative, direct, empathetic, confidant, and a great listener.”
At the age of 22, I had two benign tumors removed from my left breast and as I expected, the surgery left me asymmetrical. My breast surgeon told me that my breasts would eventually “even out” and the difference in size would no longer be so noticeable. Well, I waited a year and a half for the asymmetry to diminish and needless to say, it did not. About 4 months ago, I underwent asymmetrical breast augmentation with 350cc saline implants (overfilled to 410cc in the left, and 375cc in the right).
Before surgery, I spent hours on the Internet researching breast augmentation, various implants and most importantly, plastic surgeons. I scheduled consultations with a few of the best surgeons in the area. I say “the best” based on their before and after photos, patient testimonials and most importantly, the surgeon’s recommendations from other physicians. After meeting Dr. DeLuca, I did not need to go to any more consultations. Dr. DeLuca was informative, direct, empathetic, confidant, and a great listener. Dr. DeLuca and his staff were not only helpful throughout my surgery, both before and after, but also always available for questions. I cannot thank them enough. I am very happy with my new breasts and my increased confidence. Thank you again!
Oh and for those of you considering breast augmentation, I highly recommend you go with Dr. DeLuca. The recovery time was about a week. I did not lose ANY feeling, no scaling/rippling, and they look/feel real!

“The pictures that looked the best & the name that people recommended most was Dr. DeLuca.
After meeting for my consultation I knew he was the plastic surgeon for me.”
I had wanted breast augmentation for several years. I searched the internet and studied photos of various plastic surgeons and spoke to many people about it. The pictures that looked the best and the name that people recommended most was Dr. DeLuca. After meeting Dr. DeLuca for my consultation I knew he was the plastic surgeon for me. He made me feel very comfortable. He answered my questions and put me at ease with the procedure. Dr. DeLuca and his staff were very helpful and made the whole process very easy.
I am extremely happy with my results. I am pleased to say that I have received many compliments on how good I look and how natural it looks. I have recommended Dr. DeLuca to all my friends and co workers interested in plastic surgery.
- Kim G. / Hudson Falls, NY – August 17, 2011
“Upon my first meeting with Dr. DeLuca, I felt so comfortable that I immediately
scheduled the procedure. I truly feel there is no better doctor.”
I cannot say enough about Dr. DeLuca! After having three children, I found myself not feeling good about my body and for almost two years considered having a breast augmentation. Upon my first meeting with Dr. DeLuca, I felt so comfortable that I immediately scheduled the procedure. I was extremely nervous so he took a lot of time to explain the procedure and gave me a great idea as to what would happen and how I would feel on surgery day and after.
It has been just three months and my results are amazing. I highly recommend Dr. DeLuca and his staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. DeLuca and I truly feel there is no better doctor!

“I am happy every single day that I went through with my breast augmentation.
I was always self conscious and now I feel so good about myself as a woman.”
I never thought that I was someone who would have plastic surgery. I am just a normal girl. I was so scared and nervous throughout the entire process before surgery (we’ve all heard and seen the horror stories of plastic surgery gone wrong). But I am happy every single day that I went through with my breast augmentation. Before surgery, I had such a small chest – I was always self conscious and now I feel so good about myself as a woman. Dr. DeLuca was so comforting and professional every time I met with him and he did such a fantastic job! I am so grateful for him!

For years I have wanted to have breast augmentation. At age 47, my dream came true. After consulting with a friend from California, who works with plastic surgeons, and becoming educated as to what to look for in a good surgeon, I found Dr. DeLuca. Dr. DeLuca and his team offer an environment that is both professional and warm. At my consultation appointment, Dr. DeLuca was very attentive and informative. I felt confident that I was in good hands and would be pleased with my results. By being in good health and having a talented surgeon, I had minimal discomfort after my surgery. Because of Dr. DeLuca’s years of experience and wonderful bedside manners, I had a great experience and am thrilled with my results! Thank you, Dr. DeLuca, for helping me feel better about myself!

“I have thought about having breast augmentation done for years after breast feeding
my children left me with little breast firmness. I now wonder why I waited so long.”
I have thought about having breast augmentation done for years after breast feeding my children left me with little breast firmness. I now wonder why I waited so long. Dr. DeLuca and his staff are very professional and listen to every question or concern that one may have. The surgical associates where the procedure was done were fabulous…very caring, non-judgmental and efficient. I could tell that every detail was thought of and I have never had such an excellent surgery experience. I am so glad that I finally followed through with the surgery. I will have no problem deciding where to go in the future for any further plastic surgery procedures!

“Dr. DeLuca listened as I described my fear of being “too fake”…By day 4, I had sometimes even forgotten that I had the procedure done…that’s how natural my breasts looked & felt.”
I was first introduced to Dr. DeLuca over 2 years ago at a sporting event. I remember asking him in passing the type of surgeries he performs, and it was at that time I had begun to more seriously think about it for myself. I had no doubts on Dr. DeLuca’s reputation or his work, as I had several references (all very positive!). My doubts were from within…whether the surgery was right for me. I was considering breast augmentation, and as someone who prides themselves on being genuine, I was afraid that breast augmentation would scream the opposite.
By taking the step to get a consultation with Dr. DeLuca, that was my realization that I was ready. In the consultation, it was helpful for me to talk to Dr. DeLuca about WHY I had wanted the surgery. At 5,10″, 160 pounds, and an athletic/fit build, I felt my breast size didn’t match the rest of my body. Dr. DeLuca listened as I described wanting to find that balance, and my fear of being too big (aka, “too fake”). We talked a few size options, and he ran 3D generated augmentation images for me to see how each would look on my body.
It was only 3 weeks from consultation to surgery date. I was more excited than nervous, and now 2 months post-op, I ask myself, “What took me so long!”. I had a fairly quick recovery and was back to work within 5 days. By day 4, I had sometimes even forgotten that I had the procedure done…that’s how natural my breasts looked and felt. I went conservative on the size, and am happy to report that my genuine character remains in tact.
All in all, I’m very happy with my decision, the results, and the support of Dr. DeLuca and his staff. A big thanks to all!

Great Doctor. Fantastic results!! Should have done this ages ago!! Dr. Deluca was able to increase my breast size and make them look incredible, yet still natural! Super happy with my results, anyone out there looking for a Plastic Surgeon, look no further!

“I had wanted larger breasts mostly for a more proportional and feminine look, but was hesitant because I disliked the appearance of very large, fake looking augmentations.”
I considered getting a breast augmentation for a long time before pursuing a consultation with Dr. DeLuca. I had wanted larger breasts mostly for a more proportional and feminine look, but was hesitant because I disliked the appearance of very large, fake looking augmentations. After consulting with Dr. DeLuca, I felt much more comfortable with the procedure and my expected outcome. He listened to exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with my results. Now my breasts fit my body perfectly and look even more natural than I had expected. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long!

“After having 2 children, Dr. DeLuca was able to give me a natural look that I had always wanted. The confidence that I now have in myself is incredible.”
My experience with Dr. DeLuca and his office staff was remarkable! I was nervous about having plastic surgery due to the fact that I am extremely modest, but after I had my first consultation I felt 100% confident in Dr. DeLuca.
After having 2 children, Dr. DeLuca was able to give me a natural look that I had always wanted. The confidence that I now have in myself is incredible. The process from beginning to end was so smooth and simple. If I had questions, someone was always there to answer my calls. The staff at Dr. DeLuca’s office as well as the staff at the surgery center was so kind and helpful. Not once did I feel unsafe, unsure, or worried that I made the wrong decision. The healing and recovery phase wasn’t nearly as bad as I had anticipated. When I spoke with an acquaintance about her procedure that was done by another surgeon, I was blown away with how much discomfort and nausea she dealt with.
I can honestly say that Dr. DeLuca’s professionalism, bed-side manners and skills are truly what anyone would want in a plastic surgeon. His impeccable work puts a smile on my face every day and I have and will recommended him to family and friends that are thinking about having plastic surgery.

“I made an appointment with Dr. DeLuca because he came highly recommended from
other women I spoke to who had had breast augmentation surgery.”
Last year I lost a significant amount of weight which caused my breast to shrink down two sizes. I’ve been debating on getting breast augmentation for a while. I made an appointment with Dr. DeLuca because he came highly recommended from other women I spoke to who had had breast augmentation surgery. I told him that I wanted a “natural look”, he made me feel completely comfortable. His office is great – they answered any questions I had. They also called in to check on me. Two months later and I look and feel amazing. I’m extremely happy that I went through with the surgery and had Dr. DeLuca as my doctor. I had a wonderful experience and recommend everyone go to Dr. DeLuca.
- Shanna / Albany, NY – November 5, 2012
“It wasn’t until last year, when I finally got the courage to meet Dr. DeLuca, that I began
feeling confident about going through with breast augmentation.”
I came across Dr. DeLuca’s practice a few years ago, when I was still in college and beginning my research on breast augmentation. As a tall and lean girl, I was never very unhappy with my body, however, a larger chest was always something I wanted. I began my research with skepticism, because as much I wanted a larger chest, I knew going through with a procedure would have its risks. It wasn’t until last year, when I finally got the courage to meet Dr. DeLuca, that I began feeling confident about going through with breast augmentation. It turned out that I was an excellent candidate due to my good health. Being the nervous person that I am, I asked Dr. DeLuca hundreds of questions (some of which I might’ve asked twice) and he never hesitated to give me honest answers. So after “re-researching” my options and debating my decision, I decided to have the procedure. Following my surgery, Dr. DeLuca was very comforting and showed his concern over how I was feeling. In my post-op visits, he made sure that I felt well and was happy with my decision. Nearly three months later, I am very happy with my appearance and feel confident that I will remain in good health. Overall, I am very satisfied with both Dr. DeLuca and his staff, for they were all very professional and caring, and they met my expectations. I have already recommended their services! Many thanks to everyone!

“I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone considering breast augmentation.
Dr. DeLuca is a fantastic plastic surgeon!!”
My first appointment with Dr. DeLuca was one that was very professional. Instead of a nurse calling me into the Doctor’s office, the doctor himself came out to greet me. He was neat and very pleasant. This alone, made me feel like I would be in good hands.
The day of my surgery, all went well. The staff and Dr. Deluca made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone considering breast augmentation. Dr. DeLuca is a fantastic plastic surgeon!!

My experience with Dr. Deluca was exactly what I hoped for. He gave me the facts and also gave me his opinion. I was traveling 3 hours away and Dr. Deluca made it as easy for me as possible he was also very flexible. When he came to see me just before surgery his bed side manner really helped me relax. Trusting your surgeon with your body is very important. I wouldn’t change a thing and I would and have recommended Dr. DeLuca to friends and family.

“Because of my positive experience, my Mom contacted Dr. DeLuca for a facelift and brow lift too.”
After many years of considering breast augmentation, I made the decision to contact Dr. DeLuca. I immediately felt comfortable with his professionalism and was reassured that my procedure would be successful. I also had liposuction to my abdominal area and I am so glad that both surgeries were done at the same time. I was truly in minimal pain and the recovery time was approximately four weeks. It has been four years and I am very pleased with the results and feel confident that I made the right choice.
I have also consulted Dr. DeLuca for Botox treatments two times and have been very pleased with the natural results. Each treatment actually lasted approximately six months and had no discomfort.
Because of my positive experience, my Mom contacted Dr. DeLuca for a facelift and brow lift too. She was sixty eight at the time and also felt very comfortable with his professionalism and expertise in both areas. It has been three years for my Mom and she is also very pleased with the results. Dr. DeLuca’s work was very natural looking and gave my Mom a rested look. Her recovery time was approximately six weeks and had minimal pain during recovery.
I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca and feel confident with his expertise in all of the above areas I mentioned. He is a very compassionate and knowledgeable physician.

“I have recommended Dr. DeLuca to over 15 people”
I have been a client of Dr. DeLuca’s for 20 years. I am also in the medical profession. The skill with which Dr. DeLuca performs surgery is artistic, aesthetic, and by far the most natural I have seen. I have had several surgeries over the twenty year span, facial as well as breast augmentation. After each recovery people ask what I am doing differently, why do I look so good? No one can place surgery as the reason which is the greatest complement to a plastic surgeon in my mind.
Dr. DeLuca has an amazing way with his patients. He really pays attention to what is important to each individual. He has refused to perform procedures that I had inquired about because he felt they weren’t necessary. His commitment to his patients best interests is unmatched.
I have recommended Dr. DeLuca to over 15 people, both friends and family, all of whom have undergone surgery with him with phenomenal results and more referrals.
Words can’t express the difference Dr. DeLuca has made in my life on so many levels. Increased confidence being the most important.
Whether someone is seeking a plastic surgeon for elective or medically necessary reasons, there is no one I would trust or recommend more then Dr. DeLuca.

“My lift and augmentation surgery went very smoothly and I love the results. I feel so much
better about my appearance and would recommend Dr. DeLuca without hesitation.”
I have always been self conscious of the way my body looked. After having three kids, it was more pronounced. I had a lot of questions and was very nervous about the possibility of surgery. My initial consultation with Dr. DeLuca was very informative and put me right at ease. He answered all my questions, even the silly redundant ones. I ended up scheduling the surgery that day. I have not regretted my decision at all. My lift and augmentation surgery went very smoothly and I love the results. I feel so much better about my appearance and would recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone without hesitation. The office is wonderful and helpful too. Thank you to all.

“I highly recommend Dr. DeLuca for breast lift and/or augmentation in Albany, NY.”
Dr. DeLuca has positively changed my life forever!
My name is Valerie and I am a 45 year old single mother with three daughters. After breast feeding all three infants for a period of one year my breast size decreased two sizes. I sought out three opinions for breast augmentation. The first two opinions I received wanted to do a full breast lift and breast implants which required a higher fee and a lot more surgery.
Dr. DeLuca was the last opinion I received and was feeling frustrated knowing that the expense was great and the surgery more complicated than I thought. Dr. DeLuca was able to do a less complicated surgery at a lower cost. My breasts are amazing and have been life altering for me. Dr. DeLuca was very thorough with a wonderful bedside manner and an incredible talent for breast augmentation. I highly recommend him for breast lift and/or augmentation and continue to refer him to all my friends.

“I was very specific in the look that I wanted and Dr. DeLuca did exactly what I asked for.”
I had my consultation with Dr. DeLuca on August 9, 2010. I was very anxious to have my surgery and Dr. DeLuca was able to do my surgery on August 13, 2010. I was very specific in the look that I wanted and Dr. DeLuca did exactly what I asked for. Considering the amount of work Dr. DeLuca had to do on me my end result was exactly what I wanted. I love the way I look thanks to Dr. DeLuca’s magical hands. I would highly recommend him for any type of plastic surgery. The staff in the office is just as considerate and helpful as Dr. DeLuca himself.
Thank you Dr. DeLuca for making me feel beautiful again. God Bless.

“After years of wanting to bring my chest back to my pre-pregnancy condition, I finally
got the courage to do it and I couldn’t be happier with the results.”
After years of wanting to bring my chest back to my pre-pregnancy condition, I finally got the courage to do it – and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I had a mastopexy augmentation. My scars have faded greatly and seem to continue more as time goes on. It’s been 7 months and the only scars visible are under neath my breasts in the crease. Dr. DeLuca was very informative and understanding of the results I was lookin for. I am so happy and feel better about myself inside and out. I would definitely recommend DeLuca Plastic Surgery.

- Post-Pregnancy Breast Lift & Augmentation -
“I highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone that has any hesitation about plastic surgery
as I felt he really listened to me and made the process as comfortable as possible.”
I am very pleased with the work that Dr. DeLuca performed on me. I had neck liposuction and breast augmentation done simultaneously. Going into this I had two major concerns, the first being neck bruising. A couple of days after the surgery I only had slight bruising at the base of my neck and after the first week, all of the bruising was gone. The second concern I had was having my breast augmentation be too noticeable. I was originally a B cup and since breast feeding two children and climbing towards 40 years old, I became a saggy B cup. I wanted more fullness and to be more proportionate. Dr. DeLuca helped me to decide that a C cup would meet my goals. I am very happy with the size and the fact that clever clothing planning disguises my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone that has any hesitation about plastic surgery, as I felt he really listened to me and made the process as comfortable as possible.

“The largest compliment was from my grandchild, who when he first saw me
surprisingly stated ‘Memes, your face is brand new again.’”
I am writing to thank you and your team for your assistance in making an extremely important decision in my life with regards to my recent surgery. This is something that I have considered for many years. Your clear and concise explanation of the processes, procedures, and overall expectations were paramount in my making my final decision.
Each stage and post operation visits, in my opinion, were excellent experiences. I was surprised to experience no pain from this surgical procedure and followed your post op directions without deviation. The transformation and final outcome was more than I expected and I am thrilled with moving forward having made this decision in my life.
I spent time away with my daughter who assisted me with the post operation directions which was of great help, and I did not see my grandchildren during this time frame. The largest compliment, other than my sincere thanks would be from my grandchild, who when he first saw me surprisingly stated, “Memes, your face is brand new again.”
In closing, I again thank you for such diligent work and exceeding my expectations. I would certainly do it all over again without question!

“Almost immediately after surgery, the pain was relieved! Recovery was a breeze. My
appearance is very natural and I am much more confident. I wish I had done it sooner.”
Dear Dr. DeLuca, Thank you so much for the wonderful breast lift and breast reduction surgery you performed 3 months ago! It has made a significant positive impact on my life. Prior to surgery, I had chronic shoulder and neck pain. I used to place heating pads under my bra straps to relieve the pain. In addition to the pain, I was extremely self-conscious of my chest and limited in the tops I could wear. Almost immediately after surgery, the pain was relieved! Recovery was a breeze. I am enjoying buying shirts that button and wearing shirts that are 2 sizes smaller! My appearance is very natural and I am much more confident. I wish I had done it sooner.
Thank you and your great staff!

“Dr. DeLuca is the best plastic surgeon in the Albany, NY area”
To anyone who is contemplating getting a breast reduction, do not be scared. From start to finish there is nothing to worry about. From the moment I entered the office and was greeted by Dr. DeLuca’s secretary Gloria, I was totally at ease. Dr. DeLuca has such a great bedside manner and I felt comfortable talking to him. He gave me great advice on how much breast tissue I should have removed to fit my body proportions. It has been several years now and my only regret is not getting this surgery sooner. It has truly changed my life in many different ways. Dr. DeLuca is the best plastic surgeon in the area in my opinion. I have referred many of my friends and business associates to him and they all have been very happy with their results.

- Breast Reduction for Size DD Breasts -
“I feel great and look great — thanks Dr. DeLuca.”
I have always had large breast; my gynecologist has hinted for several years to me regarding a breast reduction; until the suggestion I never gave it a thought. Over the last three years the thought of a breast reduction has always been in the back of my mind. When I look at myself in pictures/mirror I see large and hanging breasts with large indentations in my shoulders and back pain. A friend recently underwent a breast reduction and when I saw her was amazed at how great she looked.
I have never had surgery but knew I was unhappy with my size DD breasts; I decided to make an appointment with Dr. DeLuca just to discuss the process and procedure (keeping in the back of my mind that I’m just talking to the Doctor no decisions have to be made).
I was a little nervous on appointment day; will I be able to do this, have surgery? When I met Dr. DeLuca he made me very comfortable, he showed me pictures of other women’s breasts before and after their surgery – my breasts looked just as large and saggy as these women’s but the after pictures were amazing. Dr. DeLuca explained what the procedures would be; however, I was still nervous but decided to go for it.
On surgery day I was not nervous because I knew this is what I wanted. The surgery went great; I didn’t need the pain medication… Tylenol worked for me. I had surgery on Tuesday and went back to work on the following Monday.
I feel great, no back pain and the indentations in my shoulders are starting to fade. I have never worn a shirt with buttons – they always gape in the front – now I own button up shirts. I enjoy shopping for clothes. I can buy pretty colored bras; I now own a sports bra – they never fit – always looked like I had one big boob. The most amazing thing is I don’t have to wear a bra if I don’t want to – they look great.
I would recommend anyone to Dr. DeLuca, he did a wonderful job, and made me feel comfortable, and I liked him immediately. Dr. DeLuca answered all my questions I had written down in a list – he literally sat down and answered each and every one. I am very happy with my new size and wish I had this done sooner. I feel great and look great thanks to Dr. DeLuca.

“I did not hesitate; I called Dr. DeLuca and made my appointment.”
I met Dr. DeLuca back in 2003, when a family member needed a breast reduction. He was highly recommended by a co-worker and the family member was very happy with the results. I thought about having a breast reduction this year when I saw my pictures from a vacation and was not happy with what I saw. Then I ran into an old friend who always had a larger chest than me she looked wonderful! I said to her you look great and she told me about her breast reduction surgery.
At this point I was not happy with my body and more thought had me ask myself why am I dealing with back pain, bra straps dig in into my shoulder, my clothing not fitting me correctly, and always being self conscious of my breast size.
I did not hesitate; I called Dr. DeLuca and made my appointment. He explained everything about the surgery and confirmed that I was a candidate for breast reduction surgery.
After my surgery I noticed immediately relief of my back pain and my shoulders did not hurt me. I have more confidence in myself and feel 10 years younger now. Shopping is a pleasure – I can put on a blouse without worry if the blouse will pop open! I can wear anything now from a suit to a bathing suit & be comfortable about myself.
Dr. DeLuca did a wonderful job with my large and saggy breasts, now I have a perfect breast size and shape. I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone who needs a surgery. Dr. DeLuca makes you feel very comfortable to talk to, and he answers all your questions, shows you picture so you are clear on how you may look. I just recommended Dr. DeLuca to one of my friends about two months ago and she had the surgery too… She looks and feels great! Thank You Dr. DeLuca.

“For 15 years, I had been very insecure about my nose… Dr. DeLuca made subtle changes to produce a dramatic effect. My nose, long considered a cosmetic weakness, is now a strength.”
For 15 years, I had been very insecure about my nose. It projected out too far and was simply too strong for my face. Finally working up the courage to get some consultations for a rhinoplasty, Dr. DeLuca was the first surgeon I saw…and the last. I know it is advised that you should have several consultations with different surgeons before making a decision, but I felt so comfortable meeting with Dr. DeLuca and his staff that to visit other doctors just seemed irrelevant. Naturally, in the final weeks leading up to the surgery, I began to experience a lot of anxiety and second thoughts. Thankfully, I shared my concerns with Dr. DeLuca and, without any pressure, he answered all of my questions honestly and thoroughly. He even encouraged me to hold off on the procedure if I wasn’t 100% comfortable.
With confidence, I went through with the surgery and the results are precisely what I was hoping for. Dr. DeLuca made subtle changes to produce a dramatic effect. I no longer experience the insecurity I lived with for so long, and I am only 5 weeks post-op at the time of this writing. My nose, long considered a cosmetic weakness, is now a strength and compliments the rest of my facial features perfectly. Dr. DeLuca has clearly mastered the art and science of facial plastic surgery, and my results are the proof. I would recommend his services to anyone!

“When the splint first came off I was very nervous … but I was pleasantly surprised that I still looked like me, only the side view of my nose was refreshingly straight and feminine.”
I had a great experience working with Dr. DeLuca for my rhinoplasty. I told him when I first walked in that I still wanted to look like me so I didn’t want anything drastic, I just wanted my profile to improve because it was the one feature that I had never been comfortable with. I was starting a new job in 5 weeks so I felt like it was the right time in my life to make the change I had been thinking about for years. At the same time I was nervous that I wouldn’t be healed in time to meet a bunch of new people and feel confident.
It was very easy to talk to Dr. DeLuca about what I was looking for and what kind of concerns I had. Dr. DeLuca honed in on what he could do to make it better in ways that I hadn’t even considered and we talked about what changes he was going to make. Before the surgery he stopped by to talk with me before I went under and as a last request I mentioned something that had been on my mind in the days leading up to the surgery that I wanted refined and he reassured me that my nose was going to look great.
During my recovery I had some normal surgery complications that had nothing to do with my nose, but Dr. DeLuca took my 11p.m. phone calls with advice on what I could do to get better. When the splint first came off I was very nervous about what it would be like to look in the mirror and see something different, but I was pleasantly surprised that I still looked like me, only the side view of my nose was refreshingly straight and feminine, and that last request I had made before going under had been taken care of!
I am very happy with the results even just a month out of surgery, and can’t wait to see what it will look like once everything is refined over the next year.
Overall, I feel much more confident about how I look and am excited to start a new chapter of my life.

“Dr. DeLuca performed rhinoplasty in a way that naturally, and symmetrically fits my face”
Dr. DeLuca is a gifted artist who is able to see the beauty that is within you and reflect it back upon your imperfect outer form. Dr. DeLuca performed rhinoplasty in a way that naturally, and symmetrically fits my face. Also, he graciously fixed my gummy smile. No longer am I self conscious over these issues and feel free! The whole experience with his staff and St. Peter’s Surgery Center was hassle free as well as friendly and patient. Gloria, Dr. DeLuca’s secretary, helped make my dream become a reality. The 2 hour drive to Albany NY each way was time well spent! Thank you!

“After years of not feeling good about myself, I finally decided to have a rhinoplasty. It’s been 4
months since my rhinoplasty & I couldn’t be happier! Dr. DeLuca gave me exactly what I wanted.”
I had been unhappy with the bump on my nose since I was a teenager. After years of not feeling good about myself, I finally decided to have a rhinoplasty. I chose Dr. DeLuca over another local doctor because I felt he and his office staff were more professional. It’s been 4 months since my surgery and I couldn’t be happier! Dr. DeLuca gave me exactly what I wanted while keeping my nose in line with my other features. He was so professional and patient during our consultations both before and after the surgery. I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone who is thinking that maybe this is the time to do something for yourself. His experience, along with his kind and gentle bedside manner, are just what you want in a surgeon. I only wish I had done this sooner. Thank you Dr. DeLuca and your wonderful staff!

“Dr. DeLuca is not only a fabulous cosmetic surgeon but is a caring doctor as well.”
I have been a patient of Dr. DeLuca for 20 years and would highly recommend him. As a young woman, I came to him for rhinoplasty which I had always wanted. He not only corrected my nose functionally but sculpted it to look natural and perfect. I could not have imagined a better result!!
In the years that followed, a family history of melanoma put me at risk. Dr. DeLuca has removed a number of moles with minimal, if any, scarring. His office is always very accommodating and timely. I have referred many friends and family members to him because he is not only a fabulous surgeon but is a caring doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients.

“I could not be happier and I am so very grateful to have found such a
wonderful plastic surgeon in Albany NY.”
My experience with Dr. DeLuca from start to finish was a pleasant and successful journey. I was very unhappy with the bump in the bridge of my nose and I also felt it could be taken in a bit as well. I have a slender nose already, I just wanted it to be shaped correctly. I was very pleased with the professionalism and care that i have received. He explained the procedure and recovery very well and answered any questions. I am extremely happy with the result and it has only been about 2 and a half months!! I feel like i have the most perfect nose now! I also had a septoplasty in addition to the rhinoplasty. It has resolved my breathing issues while sleeping, entirely. The difference is night and day! I could not be happier and I am so very grateful to have found such a wonderful Doctor to do my surgery! Thank you Dr. DeLuca!

“Thanks to my face lift surgery with Dr. DeLuca, I now feel more confident in my entire face looks.”
Why I decided to have a full face lift,eye lids neck, cheeks: I was aging and I didn’t like the umbrella of aging… you know, covering your face with make up, hats, hair in your face, oh and the magical face creams, of which none worked despite costing mega bucks! They don’t, wont and cant give you back your youthfulness and former looks. Our face is the first part of us that people notice and they quickly make an assessment on our age and appearance. The younger generations don’t realize that they will soon reach our age as well. I am sure I have done the same when I see older people. Thanks to my surgery, I now feel more confident in my entire face looks…I notice on-lookers seeing me with a pleasantness and acceptance now… instead of “look at that old woman”. The discomfort of surgery was minimal and I healed quickly . Dr DeLuca is a pleasant gentleman & an articulate surgeon who knows his work well. He gives of himself to his patients. I am thankful I met him and thankful for the surgical services he gave me. I felt safe with his ability and I thank you very much Dr. DeLuca.

- Facelift + Neck Lift + Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) -
“Dr. DeLuca was very attentive at my initial consultation and I really felt like he cared
about me as a person. I never felt rushed, and he answered all my questions.”
I had been self-conscious about my double chin ever since I had my second child. Finally, in my sixties, I decided to do something about it. I had a modified facelift and upper & lower blepharoplasty. What a difference! I used to feel like the aging woman in the mirror wasn’t the real me. Now I actually enjoy putting makeup on again, even though I wear less. I get so many compliments like, “’Love your new haircut!” or “That color looks great on you.” The results are so natural that nobody suspects that I had work done, and I’m not about to tell!
Dr. DeLuca was very attentive at my initial consultation and I really felt like he cared about me as a person. I never felt rushed, and he answered all my questions. I asked about a brow lift, and he said I didn’t need one. His office staff is also personable and efficient. I always felt that I was in good hands.
Dr. DeLuca is not just an excellent surgeon; he is truly an artist. He not only lifted my sagging neck and chin line, but he also sculpted the contours of my cheeks to give me a more youthful appearance. I have no more bags under my eyes and no droopy eyelids. I am three months out from surgery, and although there is still just a little residual numbness, the look just keeps getting better. My scars are healing nicely, and are extremely well hidden. I couldn’t be happier.

“After viewing his before and after photos I was highly confident in his abilities as a surgeon and I also felt that he knew what procedures would achieve the best possible results for my situation.”
I thought about getting cosmetic surgery for a while as I lacked confidence in my appearance. I started to look older. Initially I thought it best to consult with a number of doctors that were board-certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgery and who were also members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Dr. DeLuca was the second surgeon I saw who met that criteria. At the end of my 1st consultation I had no doubt that Dr. DeLuca would be the right choice for me and I had no desire to consult with anyone else. After viewing his before and after photos I was highly confident in his abilities as a surgeon and I also felt that he knew what procedures would achieve the best possible results for my situation.
I am now four months post-op and I am extremely happy with the outcome of my cosmetic procedures. In my opinion Dr. DeLuca is a very talented plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience in his areas of expertise. He is easy to talk to and he has personally responded to my e-mail queries very promptly.
I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone who is considering facial cosmetic surgery. He is outstanding in every way. Thank you very much, Dr. DeLuca!

“Dr. DeLuca is a very kind and personable man and I cannot say enough about his kind manner.”
My daughter, Liza had breast reduction surgery by Dr. DeLuca when she was 19 years old in 1996. She had very large breasts much out of proportion with the rest of her body. She was very impressed and so was I with Dr. DeLuca’s very kind bedside manner. She was so pleased with her “new” breasts that she wanted to show everyone, even her father (who declined of course).
Liza is no longer on this earth – she is in heaven after being murdered by her husband in 2004. However she was always proud of how she looked and how she felt after the surgery. I too had liposuction done by Dr. DeLuca in February 2004 and also was very pleased with the results. He is a very kind and personable man and I cannot say enough about his kind manner. I also must commend his staff for their professionalism and kindness.

Eyelid Lift Surgery
“Thank you Dr. DeLuca for being such a kind caring surgeon. You made me feel like a special high-end movie star, not just a senior trying to look better…wish I did it sooner!”
I am a 65 year old female who has had droopy eyelids with bags under my lower lids for years. I always looked tired. My eye doctor advised me that I would probably qualify for upper eyelid surgery based on my vision testing which would be covered by insurance. I decided I wanted all 4 lids done by a plastic surgeon.
I had been to Dr. DeLuca years ago for removal of a cancerous mole on my shoulder and brought my 18 year old granddaughter to him for removal of a mole on her back. At that time, I asked Dr. DeLuca about my eyes. It was not even my appointment, but my granddaughter’s. He quickly examined my eyes and said he could fix them. I spoke to Karen in the office and she said she could facilitate the paperwork through the Eye Doctor’s office to them. I believe another Dr’s office would not be so helpful and considerate with all the steps I needed to take to get half the work covered through insurance. Karen made it a breeze.
Fast forward to my time with Dr. DeLuca. He examined my eyes, had his assistant take before pictures, showed me a book of pictures of other patients and sent me to Karen for the paperwork. She sent me a complete package explaining everything, set up an appointment for the surgery and said I could call with any questions. The insurance paperwork took a little bit of massaging as it involved another doctor, but Karen made it happen.
The day of surgery was a breeze. I felt like I was going in to have a massage instead of surgery. Dr. DeLuca came in my pre-op room, met my hubby, drew pen dots around my eyes, patted my hand, chatted a bit with my hubby, and went on his way to the O.R The staff at the surgery center were very calming, the anesthesia took effect right away, and my hubby stayed with me till I was whisked away.
After surgery Dr. DeLuca gave me a few instructions, and the nursing staff gave me my cold packs and pain scripts and I was on my way. I never needed the pain meds. I never had a bit of pain which was unbelievable. I iced as instructed and rested and within a week I was mostly all better. I did have a red mark on my cheek which concerned me so I called a bit upset and spoke to a staff member and Karen at another point. I took a telephone picture of my cheek and forwarded it to Dr. DeLuca with the help of a staff member. He looked at it on his surgery day between patients and a staff member called me right back to say it would go away in a few days and would not stay. She added that it was because I was fair skinned and Dr. DeLuca applied a solution under the eyes to tighten the skin. She assured me that if it wasn’t gone in a week that I should call and come in and they could fix it and look at it. It was gone within 3 days. I was just a new uninformed patient and all I needed was a caring gentle soul to talk to who wouldn’t patronize me.
The whole staff at Dr. DeLuca’s office, Dr. DeLuca surely, and the surgical center staff should all work in a delivery room. They are that gentle and calming. Now, my eyes look so much younger and more rested. I love putting on eye makeup. I could do it 10 times a day it is so much fun and looks so great. My eyes even look good without makeup. I tell some people I had the surgery and some people I don’t which depends on how well I know them. They ask me if I lost weight (I wish), whether I’ve been on vacation because I look so much better, if I had a new outfit on, a new hairdo. I chuckle to myself because I know it is my eyes. And because Dr. DeLuca put a solution under the eyes to tighten my skin, it looks to me like I had an upper half facelift. Even the folds along my nose are lessened.
It was more than I expected and the results are amazing. I figure, you look at yourself at least 2 times a day in the mirror (although now I look much more but that will probably pass); you would spend money on a weekend vacation, you would spend money for a special gift for a loved one. So, go for it, but make sure to use Dr. DeLuca for guaranteed success and top-notch care. My sister said when I asked her what she thought of my eyes……You look great, but not fake. It is more like a whisper, not a shout.
Thank you Dr. DeLuca for being such a kind caring surgeon. You made me feel like a special high-end movie star, not just a senior trying to look better. And thanks to your staff, especially Karen who I dealt with the most. They were great too. I just love my eyes, my whole face. As I read from others on your website, I too wish I did it sooner.
Oh, and p.s. for all the women who think they can’t afford it and that it is a frivolous move, the payment is super easy too. You even offer a reasonable no interest payment plan through an outside company similar to buying a piece of furniture on a 6 month no interest plan. I chose to charge on a credit card and earn flyer miles instead. Thanks to my eye doctor, Dr. Kwaitt in Amsterdam who didn’t care that I was having another doctor do the surgery. Thanks to my hubby too for the best birthday/mother’s day present ever. I raved about Dr. DeLuca so much that my hubby threatened to wear surgical scrubs to bed. LOL. Seriously, you are the best. If I was a little younger I’d get lots more stuff fixed. I would do a whole mommy redo like I see on the website. Why not?
Best of luck in the future. Sincerely, another happy patient.

“I am a 44-year-old nurse practitioner who had heavy lower eyelid bags. I was looking for (a plastic surgeon) with many years experience, whom performed many facial surgeries & confidence.”
I am a 44-year-old nurse practitioner who had heavy lower eyelid bags. I did extensive research to find just the right plastic surgeon to perform a lower blepharoplasty. I was looking for someone with many years experience, whom performed many facial surgeries and someone with confidence. I found all of these attributes as well as a wonderful bedside manner in Dr. William DeLuca.
I found it quite easy to make an appointment and to schedule my surgery within two weeks time. My surgery took approximately one hour under general anesthesia. I had minimal bruising and absolutely no pain postoperatively.
I can’t be happier with the results. I’ve been told I look 15 years younger. Dr. DeLuca has been quick to answer any questions and return my phone calls right away. It is important to trust your surgeon, especially with facial surgery, Dr. DeLuca is definitely the right choice. I would definitely recommend him to any of my patients.

“My friends recommended that I consider having a procedure known as a blepharoplasty
and Dr. DeLuca was the most frequently recommended surgeon”
I am a 52 year old woman. As a dark skinned “Mediterranean” woman, I have been plagued with very dark circles under my eyes whether I am tired or not. As such, I have been applying concealer on my circles for the last 40 years. Not being the gentle-touch kind of person, I inadvertently created a lot of unsightly damage. In addition to this (and perhaps hereditary), my eyelids were drooping such that in the late afternoon, I had trouble seeing (anything but half of an eyelid). My friends recommended that I consider having a procedure known as a blepharoplasty and Dr. DeLuca was the most frequently recommended surgeon. After doing extensive research, I decided to proceed. Dr. DeLuca informed me that he could solve the issue with the incredibly excessive skin above and below my eyes, but he indicated that I would, by heritage, still have the dark circles. I truly appreciated his honesty, and proceeded anyway.
The surgery was a “piece of cake” just like the Dr. said it would be. I am a whimp, and did not believe him, but he was right!
So many of my friends that knew that I was having this done raved about how good I looked. Being a skeptic, I reserved comment. Then when Dr. DeLuca showed me the before and after pictures, I was blown away!! Dear Dr. DeLuca, please post these pictures. I think that other women/men might benefit from this visual. I would be happy to speak to anyone via Dr. DeLuca if they are considering this surgery and have any questions. I am sorry that I waited so long!!
PS – My circles are actually less dark, so I guess I got lucky in that regard!

“The level of comfort and confidence you bestow on your patients is simply amazing.
Thank you for all that you have done for me.”
My procedure with Dr. DeLuca was eyelid surgery, both upper & lower lids. I had experienced thyroid cancer in 2006 and the entire ordeal took a toll on me both emotionally and (as I saw it) cosmetically – especially when I would see myself appearing very tired. And yes, age too was a factor in my needing this procedure. I had not one but two consultations with Dr. DeLuca and decided that he was the perfect person to help me. And even though it’s been a few years now since my surgery, I still have zero doubts that he was the best plastic surgeon I could have had perform the procedure. I would do it all over again. I searched for and found his new website and decided to share my story for anyone else who might currently feel as I once did. I was searching for his information to give to a friend of mine who constantly compliments me on my eyes and wants to have a procedure done by Dr. DeLuca also.
Dr. DeLuca, I cannot thank you enough. You are a professional individual and I applaud you for that. The level of comfort and confidence you bestow on your patients is simply amazing – thank you for all that you have done for me.

“I feel I received the total care that one comes to expect from
the beginning to the end of my surgery.”
I was extremely unhappy with the way my upper eyelids were starting to droop, and the puffiness and bags under my eyes made me look 10 years older. Nothing fixed the problem, no matter how many creams and potions I tried. I was very skeptical of plastic surgery at first, but my experience with Dr. DeLuca and his highly competent staff was enough to set me at ease. Any question I had was answered promptly and professionally. I feel I received the total care that one comes to expect from the beginning to the end of my surgery. I was especially surprised how I was not treated like a number, but rather like a person. The staff were concerned and checked on me even after I had went home. They truly care! I have had such a positive experience that I have recommended him to others and will be back again myself.

“When I look in the mirror I can’t see any evidence of having had eyelid surgery.
I just look bright-eyed, refreshed and more youthful.”
I had been considering having blepharoplasty for several years. I had developed puffy, droopy eyelids and I wasn’t happy about my appearance, especially when I saw photographs of myself. After meeting a friend who had had this procedure done by Dr. DeLuca, seeing her beautiful results and hearing about her total surgical experience, I made the decision to have a consultation with Dr. DeLuca. He said I was a good candidate for this procedure. My surgery was done on March 15th. It is now April 30 and when I look in the mirror I can’t see any evidence of having had eyelid surgery. I just look bright-eyed, refreshed and more youthful. My family and friends agree! I had such a positive experience that I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone considering plastic surgery. I’m glad I took my time in choosing the right doctor, but I wish I had heard about Dr. DeLuca sooner!

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
“I reside in Toronto and there are so many plastic surgeons in my city. However, after doing research, my husband and I were most impressed with Dr. DeLuca’s work.”
I am extremely glad that I had my tummy tuck done by Dr. DeLuca. I am a petite woman in my thirties. I had two c-sections and delivered two huge babies. As a result, I ended up with a very large flap of tummy that exercise would not take away. I reside in Toronto and there are so many plastic surgeons in my city. However, after doing research, my husband and I were most impressed with Dr. DeLuca’s work with previous patients and his attention to detail. Plastic surgery is a marriage of good surgical skills and the fine art of delivering an aesthetically satisfying result. I trusted Dr DeLuca’s years of experience in surgery and liked the pictures of previous clients. Dr DeLuca was very frank and realistic about my outcome. He was very polite and made me extremely comfortable. I felt I was in safe hands. The doctors and staff at the surgical centre made me feel very calm and reassured on the day of my surgery. I also was given very good after surgical care. My results are amazing and I am always happy to look at myself in the mirror. This is one of the best decisions I have made and the investment is totally worth it. I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca! I will only go to Dr DeLuca if I decide to have any procedures in the future. This experience has made me very happy.

“I used to hate seeing myself in the mirror but no more…I am much more giving & sexual because I feel sexier myself…There isn’t a minute in a day that I’m not so glad I got up the nerve to do this!”
This was the best thing I ever did for myself. For years, I hated the appearance of my stomach – big and droopy. I knew I would never be able to get rid of it on my own – there were not enough stomach crunches in the world to fix this. The best decision I made was to go to Dr. DeLuca. He was referred to me by a friend that he had done a tummy tuck for who was very happy with the results.
Dr. DeLuca put me at ease immediately. He was great on the day of surgery. Even better, he was available after the surgery! One Saturday night about 10 days after surgery, I had a question that I was concerned about. I called the office and the phone system must have forwarded my call because he actually answered the phone himself – no answering service or machine!
I am thrilled with the results I got. It has given me a lot more confidence in my appearance. I used to hate seeing myself in the mirror but no more. Don’t get me wrong; I am no stunner even now. The difference is I have a curvy body now, not an old saggy body anymore. I don’t know if I feel years younger or if I feel like I look my age rather than my mother’s! It also has given me a lot more confidence with my boyfriend. I used to feel ashamed of my body with him but now I am much more giving and sexual because I feel sexier myself.
Let me tell you the truth: the initial 3 to 4 weeks of recovery is rough – there just is no getting around it. Six months out and my stomach is still numb and there is a significant scar (which I hate but not nearly as much as I hated the belly fat – and the scar will hopefully fade while the fat was never going away!). So, if you really want it and are committed to it, that will get you through the worst of it. And, the results are well worth it!!!
There isn’t a minute in a day that I’m not so glad I got up the nerve to do this!!

“My body hasn’t looked this good in almost 30 years! My stomach is “board” flat
and the stretch marks have all been eliminated! I couldn’t be more pleased.”
I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr. DeLuca in March of 2010 with the most amazing results. I’m 49, have had 5 children – 3 of which were c-sections – and suffer from rather severe stretch marks. All are negative factors that can make it very difficult to achieve an optimal result. However, a little over one year later and in spite of the “negative factors” mentioned above, my result is incredible and I look absolutely amazing. My body hasn’t looked this good in almost 30 years! My stomach is “board” flat and the stretch marks have all been eliminated! I couldn’t be more pleased. Dr. DeLuca has by far superseded my expectations! My only regret is that I didn’t have my tummy tuck sooner!
I have a co-worker who had the same surgery performed by a different plastic surgeon – and even though she didn’t have any of the negative factors I had going into her surgery, her results don’t look nearly as good as mine.
As part of my abdominoplasty, I had to have my navel reconstructed. Not only does it look amazingly natural, it’s better looking than my “real” one! My daughter says she has seen celebrities whose navels don’t look as good or as natural as mine. Bottom line, excellent surgeon, excellent results. Also, I’d like to give many thanks to Dr. DeLuca’s assistant Gloria. She was phenomenal in the facilitation of the entire process.

“I have wanted a tummy tuck for the last 18 years and finally decided to go for it.
After meeting with Dr. DeLuca, I knew he would be great.”
I had a wonderful experience! I have wanted a tummy tuck for the last 18 years and finally decided to go for it. I read the reviews for Dr. DeLuca and they were all very positive. After meeting with him, I knew he would be great. He has a wonderful bedside manner and a calming, experienced demeanor. My tummy tuck looks fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with the result! I highly recommend him and his office!

“Before my tummy tuck & liposuction, I felt very uncomfortable about my body. After, I feel
more confident and can wear everything I want and it all looks super cute on me!”
When I met with Dr. DeLuca to consult about tummy tuck and liposuction surgery, I didn’t have to ask any questions because he answered every question I had before I even asked them. Before my tummy tuck and liposuction, I felt very uncomfortable about my body. I didn’t want to wear anything tight because I felt like I had an ugly belly. I even avoided going to parties because I didn’t feel comfortable in the clothes I owned. Even when I went to the gym I had the same problem with clothes because my belly was always showing.
After my tummy tuck and liposuction, I feel more confident and I can wear everything I want and it all looks super cute on me! Dr. DeLuca did a wonderful job. My scar is so nice that no matter what clothes or underwear I wear, my scar is never noticeable. I am so in love with my scar that every time I look at the middle of it, I think about how wonderful a job Dr. DeLuca did. My belly is so flat it’s unbelievable.
Everyone at his office is nice and they make you feel welcomed. Another thing I like about Dr. DeLuca is that it doesn’t matter what time you call him, he will always answer. For these reasons and more, I would (and will!) recommend Dr. DeLuca to everyone I know.

Post-Weight Loss, Bariatric
& Gastric Bypass Surgery
“Tummy tuck, breast lift and eyelid surgery changed my life by giving me more confidence
in my body image. The fact that it ended up looking so good has left me happy for years.”
After losing 140 pounds due to weight loss, I decided to get surgery since I would be so unhappy with the loose skin that I would regain weight which left me even unhappier. Original surgery in 2007 – tummy tuck, breast lift and eyelid surgery – changed my life by giving me more confidence in my body image. The fact that it ended up looking so good has left me happy for years with the result. Went in again this August 2011 to have my neck and arms done. Old ugly skin is gone – yay – and I’m very happy with the results. I’ve signed up to do my thighs and butt in January 2012. I was in Dr. DeLuca’s waiting room recently and after a new prospective patient asked me if I was happy with the surgeon, I practically stripped down to show her everything I was so happy with – lol!
Dr. DeLuca is so nice. His office persona is very personable, at ease and non-judgmental. You can really talk to him and he listens. He has a great sense of what your result should be. The change in demeanor on surgery day is reassuring as his focus is all there and he’s on – all serious business giving you the sense that you’re in completely competent hands.
Geez, I guess I’m saying YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY USE THIS DOCTOR! Just don’t keep him so busy that I have to stand in line!

- Arm Lift after Massive Weight Loss -
“As an Registered Nurse, I would recommend Dr. DeLuca to anyone. My arms look
absolutely beautiful! Dr. DeLuca has a special gift…he far exceeded my expectations!”
I went to Dr. DeLuca after I was referred there by a good friend. My consultation appt. gave me the hope I was looking for.
I previously weighed 300 pounds and after losing 140 lbs my arms were left with “bat wings”. These were depressing and I could not wear any short sleeved shirts because the skin would hang out from under the sleeve. I was very self conscious of these.
When I met with Dr. DeLuca I immediately felt comfortable with him. He was professional and listened with COMPASSION to my concerns. I felt like I had known him for a long time! He explained everything about the surgery in detail and gave me plenty of time to ask questions. I was NEVER pressured into anything.
My surgery was uneventful (complication-free). During my recovery I called with a question and my phone call was returned promptly! The office staff is professional and friendly.
My arms look absolutely beautiful! Dr. DeLuca has a special gift….most people don’t even notice the scars and my tattoos are perfectly placed in the center of both my arms! I am BEYOND happy with the outcome…he far exceeded my expectations!
As an RN- I would recommend Dr. DeLuca by far to anyone. I will be back to have my belly procedure this fall!

“After having lost over 100 pounds, I needed a tummy tuck to remove all the extra skin hanging down from my mid-section… I eventually had my surgery and am so pleased with the results.”
After having lost over 100 pounds, I needed a tummy tuck to remove all the extra skin hanging down from my mid-section. I went to Dr. DeLuca for a consultation and was very pleased with how I was treated. He advised me to take it slow and not to do so much at once, which I thought was pretty honest of him. Any other surgeon might have encouraged me to go through with the procedure before I was ready. I eventually had my surgery and am so pleased with the results. Dr. DeLuca did a phenomenal job, has an excellent staff and gave me a wonderful experience. I would recommend him to anyone I know and I will definitely go to him again in the future.
